Admissions

International Montessori School welcomes a diverse community of students and families from a variety of cultures, linguistic backgrounds, and cultural experiences such as living abroad. Not all of our families know another language, but all appreciate the gift that other languages and cultures bring to their children and their families. While love of language and culture is key to joining the IMS community, appreciation for the methods and outcomes of the Montessori approach is also important.

Parents seeking the richness a language immersion program offers and the academic strength provided through the student-centered, integrated, hands-on approach are encouraged to visit our school for an observation, a tour, and an open house.

Important dates in the admissions process are listed at the bottom of the page. While we do provide priority admissions decisions on or before March 10, 2018, additional applications will be considered throughout the year on a space-available basis.

Our Admissions Process

There are three key steps to the admissions process.
Visit
Parents should contact the office to schedule an observation of one of our classrooms prior to completing the application. The classroom observation is for adults only, and one or both parents may attend. Based on the language you are interested in for your child, you will observe both our primary classroom and one of our elementary classrooms. The observation visit is typically 45 - 60 minutes.

Apply
Once you have observed one of our classes, you are invited to apply for your child's admission to International Montessori School. Supporting documents (listed below) should be sent to IMS as completed. All files can be completed electronically using Adobe Reader and submitted electronically to admissions@imsnc.org.

Meet
A classroom visit for your child and a meeting with the Head of School are scheduled after the observation and application package are completed. These visits and meetings are a time for everyone get to know each other, to answer any lingering questions, and to determine if there is a good fit between family and school.
